Researchers concluded calcium administered during pregnancy and the early postpartum period, to women with intakes around adequacy, was associated with reduced bone resorption
and, thus, may constitute a practical intervention to prevent transient skeletal loss associated with childbearing.
Unlike both dentures and bridge-supported crowns, dental implants prevent bone resorption
and are more comfortable and natural looking.
In this section, the modeling of bone for resorption
analysis is described in detail.
Osteoporosis, or reduced bone mineral density (BMD), is defined by an absolute decrease in total bone mass, caused mostly by an imbalance between osteoclastic bone resorption
and osteoblastic bone formation.
Eight rats were randomly chosen from each group, and the root resorption
index (RRI) was determined with scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
There has been only one report of PEIR in the primary dentition [Seow and Hackley, 1996], however this case presented unconventionally as an acute infection shortly after eruption of the second primary molar and resorption
was shown histopathologically in the extracted tooth.
At the same time, urinary N-telopeptide level, a marker of bone resorption
, decreased by 20% at 3 months, 33% at 12 months, and 54% at 24 months.
On the other hand, resorption
lesions may be considered common, especially in cats, where it is estimated more than 50 percent of cats are affected.
Biochemical markers of bone resorption
have been used to characterize metabolic bone diseases and assess therapeutic response in postmenopausal women .
Preclinical and Phase 1 studies have shown that Ostabolin-C stimulates significant bone formation with little to no stimulation of bone resorption
There are also some data suggesting that the hormone leptin, which is involved in regulating body weight and appetite, increases bone resorption
(the process of losing bone).
This quest was reinforced by the development of antiresorptive pharmacologic agents for the treatment of osteoporosis, as well as by the demonstration that resorption
responds sensitively to environmental or physiologic signals, whereas bone formation tends to be relatively invariant over the short term (4).
Temporal bone CT 3 weeks later showed a complete resorption
of the pneumolabyrinth (figure 2, C).
Although there are drugs that prevent bone resorption
by osteoclasts, only one Food and Drug Administration-approved compound, parathyroid hormone, stimulates bone formation.
Bone turnover involves two distinct phases: bone resorption
and bone formation.
